This project was in coordination with the North Tahoe PUD Utility District, located within the Carnelian Bay and Tahoe Vista areas. AEC compiled a comprehensive list of the potential utility conflicts that could arise during construction of the Caltrans Erosion Control Project. AEC developed improvement plans for the relocation of gravity sewer systems and the water transmission pipelines. AEC also provided construction inspection services for the relocation of those facilities.

The Martis Valley Trail (MVT) is part of a planned 62-mile trail network referred to as the “Resort Triangle.” Covering about 9 miles, the MVT section extends between Truckee and the Tahoe Basin. MVT is being completed in phases, X of which AEC has contributed to in various capacities. Our Planning, Surveying, and Engineering teams have provided background reviews, compliance assistance, surveys and mapping services, civil design, and several other services for this section of the multi-use trail. See our other project descriptions for our services on other sections of the trail connecting the resorts and communities in our area.

Planning and design for the relocation of the downtown Tahoe City Fire Station to a site located off Fairway Drive in Tahoe City. The project includes site work for a 20,000 square foot public safety center including roadway improvements to Fairway Drive, parking, new utilities and utility relocations, and a storm water collection and treatment system. AEC completed a report outlining environmental review and regulatory strategies, including resource reports covering wetlands identification, biological constraints, traffic and cultural resource issues. AEC prepared the environmental document and was responsible for all permits and regulatory approvals including 404 and 401 permitting for mitigation of wetland impacts as well as SEZ transfers through TRPA from an outside entity. The largest challenges of this project has been the impact of the footprint and siting the development to avoid the stream environment zone and wetlands that surround it. Also important, is the development of a storm water management plan that is acceptable to the TRPA and Lahontan, which provides treatment of runoff at reasonable cost.

The KBCCIP involves the redevelopment of the urban core of Kings Beach with curb and gutter, sidewalks, street furniture and stormwater quality improvements. In the conversion of the highway to three lanes, street parking must be moved from the side of the highway to separated parking lots. AEC planned, designed and permitted four separate public parking lots, approximately 20-30 spaces each. This task includes CEQA processing for three of the lots.

Pickleball courts in the Squaw Valley Park used to consist of two courts established by local residents utilizing an overflow parking area. The past five years have seen an explosion in the popularity of the sport. AEC was retained by Placer County Parks Division to design new pickleball courts for an expanded facility. An analysis matrix was completed that ranked various features of three alternative sites and configurations. AEC designed three new courts that were constructed in 2016 at Squaw Valley Park.

This project consists of a double-loaded 90-degree bay parking lot accommodating 20 parking spaces, located in Kings Beach, California. Landscaping is proposed around the perimeter of the project to provide screening of the lot from surrounding properties. The storm water treatment system is designed to meet County standards per the Storm Water Management Manual (SWMM), as well as TRPA standards. Utility relocation was also required for the project.

The Jackpine Public Parking Facility, located in downtown Tahoe City provides parking for approximately 40 vehicles. AEC began this project with the Redevelopment Agency providing topographic and ALTA surveys of the site for acquisition purposes. Initial steps were then taken by AEC to evaluate the development potential of the site, including processing of site assessment […]

This Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Project on U.S. Forest Service Land involved construction of a 6-bus inter-modal transit facility, 131-space parking lot, relocation of 450 feet of recreation access road, relocation and extension of 1,600 LF of multi-purpose recreational trails, and all storm drainage and water quality treatment systems. Roadway and drainage improvements to State Route 89 were required for left turn channelization and highway intersection improvements for the relocated recreation access road. The project design incorporated low-impact design principles, extensive use of permeable pavements and advanced stormwater management systems.
